The Machine Vice is a very useful appliance for Shaping, Milling, and Drilling machines. It is shewn at Fig. 190, and is bolted to the table of the machine, its object being the holding of work too small to be fastened down directly, or to facilitate the setting and re-setting of such work. A great desideratum is that the latter should bed firmly on the surface of the vice, accom- plished in the example by the bevelled jaw plates A A, which pull the work down at the same time as it is gripped, by sliding on the bevelled surface. The nut B can be rapidly changed to any notch, and fine adjustment be given by applying a tommy to the screw c. The jaw D has a cylindrical shank and plate F ; it can therefore be set at any horizontal angle, and the screw c will still bear upon it normally. B is also provided with lips at o, to resist upward pull.
